yellow top

Continuing with my short little series of bird photos. Again, using a tripod really makes the difference in the image quality. I have always kind of resisted using a tripod thinking "I can hold it steady." Yea right. I found though that even the act of releasing the shutter creates a little lens motion, even with the tripod. Maybe I need a better tripod, but I have a pretty good one- it was around $100. Not the best out there by far, but it should be reasonable. I had to use the shutter timer for this shot to eliminate the shake. I think what I really need is an electronic remote shutter release. They are not too much money.

That and faster glass.
